Boasting proximity to sports arenas, green spaces, shopping districts, and museums, the Country Inn & Suites, Council Bluffs is a great destination for travelers.

If you're here on business, enjoy our convenient access to the Mid-America Center, which hosts conferences and workshops throughout the year. Families won't want to miss Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, where you can marvel at a 70-foot shark tunnel, or downtown Omaha's Old Market district, where you can find an abundance of things to do just 10 minutes from the hotel. After a busy day, come back to the Country Inn & Suites to enjoy thoughtful amenities like an indoor pool and complimentary cookies, coffee, or tea served in the lobby.
